Imphal, Sept 16,

North-East Forum for International Solidarity (NEFIS) organized a candle light vigil yesterday evening  at North Campus, Delhi University against the communal incidents which recently occurred in Assam and Manipur.
 Individuals from different communities of North-East along with those from the other parts of the country also participated in the programme. A minute’s silence was also observed for the deceased.
It should be noted that recently communal clashes occurred in Tinsukia district of Assam over a facebook post, subsequent to which provocative rumors were circulated on Social Media and deliberate attempts were made by some vested interests to destroy social fabric of the region, and which have resulted in communal clashes.
In Manipur too, a youth from minority Muslim community was killed by a mob over suspicion of vehicle theft.
“It is clear from such incidents that conscious efforts are on to sow hatred among different communities in the North-East in order to reap rich political dividends”, the statement said.
The NEFIS targeted the present government saying that BJP Government has come to power at the centre and in various states in the North-East attempts have been made to communalize the atmosphere of region.
“Such communal atmosphere has been created in order to conceal the underdevelopment of the region, which fuels hatred towards other communities and results in brutal confrontations such as the present incidents. Such incidents also occur due to the poor functioning of the police system as well as fallout of the absence of pro-people policies in the region”, the statement said.
NEFIS demanded a provision for protection of minorities and urged the government should clamp down on rumor mongering and seriously deal with vested interests wishing to destroy social fabric of the region.
